    I just got a 96 tahoe, it feels like a toy coming from a 88 2500 suburban. My problem -its too low, I bottom out on steep driveways. My dealer adjusted the torsion bars it helped a bit(mabey) but now I need a wheel alignment and my headlights are out of wack when the plow is off. I was wondering if changing tire size will help,how big can I go and how off will my speedo be ?Is there anything else to do besides the whole lift kit thing (too much $$)I use a 7.5 standard western.Thanks I love this forum great advice & always some laughs.<p>Mosey

    Look under the truck and see how much they adjusted the torsion bars. It is very easy to do. There is a jacking bolt near the rear mount of the torsion bar, and all you have to do is screw it in. I got about 2&quot; of lift when I turned my up. Adjusting the headlights is easy also.<br>Now you may be able to get a 265/85/16 on the truck but probably not, but look and see. Also try a set of load boosters for the front. They are easy to install, and run about 130$. Write for part #'s if you are interested.<br>Dino<p>----------<br> Professional Ice and Snow Management <br>Products:Services:Equipment www.sima.org
